We did not love the fried green tomatoes (will have to try again someday w/ a different batch of tomatoes), but after the tomatoes we battered and fried some onion rings w/ this recipe. YUMMY!!! The onion rings deserve 5 stars! We will definitely make those again. BTW, we too experienced alot of smoke...so much in fact that our smoke alarm when off!

We had to pick the last of our tomatoes yesterday, many of which were green, due to impending frost. Soooo, that makes it Fried Green Tomato time. I hadn't tried this recipe before, but it was the best yet. We especially liked the cornmeal in the coating, plus the fact that the coating stuck to the tomatoes well. Not at all greasy. I will def try this application with onion rings, etc, in the future.

This is my recipe that I use all the time (well before it was published here). I just love it and I love fried green tomatoes. I am not sure why someone would give a bad rating because they do not like the tomatoes. That is just wrong to do. Rate the dish and recipe not your liking. Thank you Myrecipes for giving us such awesome recipes!!!

These are the greatest we have had. Only did two things differently: sliced the tomatoes and lightly salted them and let stand for 20 minutes and used peanut oil not vegetable oil to fry them. Outstanding!! Nice with a crispy crunch.

I was born and raised in the south, we have ate fried green tomatoes all my life and still love them today, this recipe is perfect wouldn't change a thing.

I have never eaten fried green tomatoes before. I've always wanted to tried it, so tonight was the perfect time to try it. I got the recipe from this online. It's my first time cooking 'em, and they were so heavenly DELICIOUS!!

These were great! I did a couple of things different. I like a little spice so I added some cayenne pepper (or Slap ya Mamma - hot seasoning) and a little paprika to tie in with the remoulade sauce. I also used peanut oil instead of vegtable oil and they turned out amazing! This one is a keeper!

This recipe is just like my mother used to make. Perfect southern version! A little tip if you don't have any buttermilk. Just add a little white vinegar to regular milk, stir and you've got buttermilk! Instantly curdles!

This was so good. Reminded me of the first time I ate fried greens tomatoes at a restaurant on the Ga/Tn line. Couldn't wait til I found some equally as good. These came to within .1 of as good as those experienced. Will certainly serve them again and again.

Perfect and simple. Added a dash of cayenne to my flour dredge, but everything else the same. Delicious.

The only thing I did differently was fry them in reserved bacon grease. I figured if I was going to "play Southerner" I should at least try to go whole hog and use bacon grease. Fried some okra at the same time with the same recipe, also exceptionally OM NOM NOM. Will definitely save this one for future reference.

Delicious!! I do believe these are the best I've ever made--so glad I went looking for a different recipe!
